Bragging Rights

My dear daughter, Kristiina, recently had the privilege of doing a photo shoot highlighting the beautifully delicate and classy jewelry hand-made by Gosia Meyer.

"I strive to create chic, elegant treasures that are beautiful yet affordable.  I design sterling silver and 14K Gold-Filled pieces accented by semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski Crystals, pearls, and glass beads." ~ Gosia Meyer

For more about Gosia and her wonderful creations, her website is a must-see!

Modeling the exquisite pieces was the lovely Jackie Croft, our Miss Southern Vermont.  Kristiina said she couldn't have been more delightful to work with... such a nice young woman!

Stunning, right?!  I'm talking about both the jewelry and Jackie, not to mention the photography!

...okay... mentioning the photography; I'm so proud of my girl!  She's talented, yes... She's thorough, patient and artistic.  But not just that, she's also dedicated to learning and growing in her craft.  It's apparent. 

The venue was the gracefully restored home built by John P. Skinner circa 1815, which is now known as Snapdragon Inn.

"A grand and historic brick home, reborn as an inn. At Snapdragon Inn, we celebrate the beauty and bounty that Vermont and the Upper Valley have to offer, and want to make your stay as relaxing as can be."  ~ Snapdragon Inn

Kristiina said they were warm and welcoming; happy to share the inn with them for the occasion. 
Please visit their website to learn more about Snapdragon Inn.

This photo is not mine, nor is it Kristiina's ...I borrowed it from Snapdragon Inn's website.

Kristiina has a knack for making her subjects feel comfortable and she's able to capture natural poses.  You can sense the essence of the mood.  I really appreciate when a photographer is able to do that.

Wouldn't you agree?

I recommend visiting her website at
     and her blog at
        and Facebook...

You'll be in for a treat!  Especially if you're in New England and need the services of a photographer!
